Demna Gvasalia’s second partnership with the metal band, first being when he was leading Vetements, offers another capsule collection and a curated playlist.
What’s so special about the campaign is that Balenciaga took three Rammstein superfans to model in garments, which are this time more expansive, with plenty of washed black layering pieces, hats and bags emblazoned with Rammstein’s logo.
Additionally, joining Balenciaga’s Apple Music playlist, Rammstein selected 30 songs across two hours of music. Its a diverse affair, encompassing tracks from German new wave group Ideal, producer Vegyn, singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten and Thom Yorke. There’s also a heaping helping of industrial bands, including Nine Inch Nails, Ministry and Rammstein’s own “Sehnsucht,” which inspired the original Vetements collaboration.
The limited collaborative Balenciaga x Rammstein apparel is available for pre-order on Balenciaga’s website and global stores, while Rammstein’s curated playlist for Balenciaga is already on Apple Music.
